Prof. Lawrence White on reform for ratings agencies
May 12, 2013
Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Lawrence J. White, a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business, says the SEC should make information available to rating firms under 17(g)5 accessible to investors as well. Mr. White says incremental changes to rating-industry practices are far more likely than an overhaul. 'There wasn't going to be major change," he says. "It wasn't going to happen quickly. It's not going to happen now.'"
